The owners of a five-story commercial manufacturing facility recently hired the Smith & Company Flooring team to apply epoxy floor coating in Beaverton. We were given two days to apply the coating to two floors of the 300,000 square foot building, so the team worked quickly.
The intent of the job was to apply epoxy as a protective coating on the floor. We needed to help prevent water from seeping through the floor to the room below. At first glance, the floors looked like they were in good condition. The Smith and Company team didn’t have to strip any previous materials or coatings off the floor as the building had just bare concrete.
The team started by priming the concrete floors with the General Polymers GP3579 primer. There were no difficulties during this step. However, after we applied the first coat of epoxy, team members noticed a lot of little small pin holes in the floor. To fix this, we filled those holes with an epoxy filler. The team then applied another coat of epoxy to the concrete floor. For the second epoxy floor coating, we used General Polymers GP3745 in “Steel Grey.
This job resulted in good-looking concrete that will protect each floor from potential water damage. The epoxy floor coating we used for this job was versatile enough to serve both aesthetic and functional purposes.
